Re: An excerpt from an immigration record

Found a Cesar Tarrasi on the 1920 Census in Guadalupe, California. when you see the actual census you can recognize that the name is actually Ferrari. He is Italian and born in Switzerland.

Re: An excerpt from an immigration record

Hi Jerry, I found a Cesar Ferrari Visca on a manifest in March of 1911. He was headed to his uncle Paolo Duchini in Guadalupe, California. The interesting thing is that his birthplace is listed as Giubasco (sound like Dubrasko to you?). Seems Giubiasco is " a municipality in the district of Bellinzo...

Re: looking for sibling

I was looking at your grandfather's manifest and it says he was going to his brother-in-law Francesco (S or P)erotta, looks like 417 Wales St., New Haven, Conn. On ancestry I found in the 1910 Census, a Franz Sharetto (I know this really doesn't look promising...) and he was Italian, a laborer, and ...

Re: looking for sibling

Looking at the manifest, Jim, what you read as "Perotta" might also be read as "Serotta".

Re: An excerpt from an immigration record

Jerry, The name after Cesar looks like Tamassi, Tarrasi, Farrasi, Farrari (or some variation). The first word on the next line could be Inglenook, since the first page of the manifest lists Emilio's final destination (column 12) as Inglenook, California (The San Francisco was crossed out). Good luck...

Re: An excerpt from an immigration record

Jerry, I can see why you're having trouble. However, the word before Cesar looks like "Uncle" to me. The dot above the word is actually from the N.Y. abbreviation above. I brought up the manifest on ancestry to look at the other handwriting on the page to see if that helps. I'll continue to look at ...

Re: 3 docs. for translation

Jim, it looks like the year for Pietro is 1913. I'm sure someone will double check these for you.

Re: 3 docs. for translation

Hi Jim, The printed part of the document is difficult to read, so I can't tell what the year is. The birth record for Pietro Ianniello is dated March 12th at 10 Am. Appearing before the town official is Fioravante Ianniello, 24, contadino, to declare that at 4 Pm on the 10th of the current month (Ma...

Re: ordering deceased parent's birth certificate

Hi Teakandreggie, I have run into this roadblock as well. It seems all the birth records prior to 1910 for NYC are available to anyone. From 1910 on you may only request with notarized permission from the person named on the certificate. Makes it kind of difficult if that person is deceased. Others ...

She married Pietro De Siena in Strongoli, had 4 children that I know of, and died in Strongoli in 1892. I have found her death record in the FHL films and that is where I learned that sh...
